Grimm Audio enters Poland with our new distributor Audiofast, and Filip Kulpa of Audio Video Magazine puts the MU1 to test. He turns it upside down and inside out, listens extensively and becomes seriously enthusastic. As a result, the MU1 is granted a 5 star “Rekomendacja” award! We are happy to share a pdf of the original Polish article with you.
“The MU1 even offered a little “analog” lightness and richness. It renders the musical contours with clean precision. The fluidity, calmness and spaciousness of the sound were phenomenal. The difference in sound quality compared to the built in streaming function of my dCS Bartok turned out to be quite big. The improvement of tangibility, sharpness, precision (that bass!) and dynamics are also significant when comparing the MU1 to other solutions of this class. I was impressed by how resolving, detached from the speakers, free and above all, how ‘natural’ the sound was exposed. (…) We are dealing with an almost perfect streamer!
The Grimm Audio MU1 is an extremely elegant, and most importantly, extremely effective solution for the problem of choosing a high end streaming transport for a high-class DAC. (…) It offers a full Roon implementation – not only the end point, but also the core. Most important, as a Roon source, the MU1 plays with impressive fidelity, surpassing many disk servers and high performance CD transports, even the very expensive and well-known ones. Inevitably, THIS quality and THIS operating comfort must cost money. Well well, that’s how it is with this hobby of ours…”
